What We’re Doing: We often find deals and choose not to advertise them because a reasonable person would assume they are actual mistakes, not just discounted rates. Last month we tried to find 100 in 100 hours. We only made it to 81 because… dang it gets hard to find these. We also received fewer reader submissions than expected. Feedback however was positive and people seemed to enjoy the format. So we are going to resurrect the idea with a much more manageable 24 in 24.

There will not be any set times; when we find one we’ll list it. We will only have the basic details. The available site we list is simply where we first spotted it so there probably are additional sites available. Keep in mind that we have not investigated these rates. Booking is definitely a hotel lottery with lots of possible outcomes: the rates are honoured, they offer a compromise rate, the booking site offers compensation, you don’t know what will happen until you show up, they send you an email telling you to get lost!

Hotel rates are often a mystery. One day a property might have a $1/room flash sale and the next day unintentionally offer a $75 “mistake” rate they are mad at you for booking. A hotel can load its normal $100 rates on one booking site while elsewhere they offer the same rooms at $400 with no indication you are being ripped off for maximum rack rate. The whole process and comparison and terms are all very confusing and annoying… likely the reason they do it that way. For deal aficionados the opaque nature of hotel rates, as opposed to airfares which have become clearer and more uniform over time, is frustrating but also a bit exciting in its unpredictability. We have always viewed sites like ours as attempts to equalize the equation. The basic premise is that if hotels and booking sites want to play lots of games they should be held to the same standards they hold consumers to. If consumers so often lose due to the complexity, “terms,” inflexible “contracts,” etc., they should also sometimes win when the tables turn. So this irregular deal series goes out to all you dice-rollers and dollar-room dreamers.

*We’re just listing what we know of that’s available. Let us know if there are others. T&C vary. Tablet credit for instance accrues at $25 per stay but can only be used on private sales. Roomertravel you need to find someone’s invite link as we are a group we can’t refer people. Etc etc.

    We have said before, but to reiterate:
    We got a lot of questions: about finding good rates, how EHD determines what a deal is, booking practices, our preferred websites, fighting for compensation, etc. In the past we have considered doing a Reddit IAmA I am a/ ask me anything. If that is something readers would participate in a reddit user familiar with the process should submit a request. If one is re-submitted and the comments show there is interest we will participate.

    @funtimes. As we stated that isn’t including taxes/fees. It is clearly a mistake rate though and clearly an awesome deal.

  11. wejet deal doesnt work anymore.

  13. New webjet promo code is “holiday”

  14. The Webjet code “holiday” seems to have a “minimum spent requirement”.

  15. It does, 300$.

  16. Thanks so much for posting these deals. I have just 1 request: can you find something in the UAE (Dubai, Abu Dhabi), preferably early October.

    I also took advantage of the Etihad fiasco, so it would be awesome to pair this with an amazing hotel deal

  17. The Movie Colony is in Palm Springs, California, not Florida.

  18. extremehoteldeals // December 27, 2014 at 8:30 am // Reply

    Noted. Thanks @boxo. You would think we would remember that given how many times this hotel has offered that rate…

  19. If you could ind some deals for end of January or beginning of February, that would be great. Thanks!

  20. Ambassador Hotel New Orleans is dead

    Booked Red Roof Plus Raleigh for $0 at redroof.com

    MaaYanky. Aren’t we all….

  24. The hotel in Grindelwald, Switzerland seems gone? 🙁

  25. Any deals in san francisco

  26. Just a heads up for #14, Arizona Golf Resort. I booked four nights in Nov. 2015, and got my confirmation number and all, but woke up today to a second email confirmation from them at a significantly higher rate, with a different conf. number, and my name spelled incorrectly. No other contact from them about the new rez, and their website won’t let me cancel the new one (at 10x the price).

    I’ve sent them an email to get it straightened out, but anyone else who got in on the deal should keep an eye on their email to be safe. Would hate to show up a year from now and have to deal with it then.

    On a side note, the original rez is still active so apparently I have two with them right now.

  27. great job!! keep it up!
